I finally got all the playsets out of their boxes and set up. I REALLY did want to put the Eternia set together, but the track pieces are so incredibly fragile that I chickened out. I also didn’t feel comfortable putting on the Lion’s arms since it didn’t seem like they would ever come off again if I did. So, Eternia looks a little wimpy in this photo, but I just didn’t want to risk breaking any of its 25 year-old plastic.
These play sets have some serious nightmare fuel incorporated in their plastic. I can’t imagine toy stores ever selling anything like these today, because I’m sure the parent’s coalitions of America would shut them down.
I think the Snake Mountain playset is my favorite. The little details on this thing are so creepy and cool.
The Fright Zone set has some ominous buzzards sitting in the branches of the tree…
…and check out the dungeon area…
Eternia! This Lion tower is a great sculpt, and look at those eyes!
The Eternia set has two smaller towers that support the track mechanism, and they would have made pretty nice play sets on their own…
The snake tower has some real creepy details…
These playsets were fun to have around and I snapped a ton of photos, but now they are destined for another collector’s collection so I can make some room on the shelf for some more great toys.
Those are so nice Brian i would so use them for backdrops for my pictures. : )
The Fright Zone set would make for some great pictures!
Very nice Brian! I can’t blame you for not wanting to chance any breakage, that’s perfeclty understandable. But Jboy has a great idea…you should use these as backdrops for some of your figures before you sell them. I’m sure you could have some interesting scenarios.
I think I might have to do that. Now where did I put that box of He-man figures… 😉
Those are beautiful pieces of plastic. I love all the skulls sculpted into the details. So creepy and lovely!
